If the soil feels dry or you forgot about your Prayer Plant for a couple of weeks, this is the most likely explanation for leaf curl. A thorough watering should help it return to normal.
What does it mean if my plant leaves are curling?
When leaves curl or ‘cup’ at the tips and the margins, the plant is trying to retain moisture. Any form of downwards curling usually indicates overwatering or overfeeding.
How long does it take for Prayer Plant leaves to uncurl?
You want to water your Prayer Plant a little bit each day for one week to prevent your Prayer Plant’s leaves from curling. This will slowly moisten the soil and won’t cause any shock. After a week you should see the leaves stop curling.
